The series is unique in providing extensive introductory and explanatory material alongside the sources to enable students to understand the various interpretations the sources have had.

Series editors are Rosemary Horrox (University of Cambridge) and Simon MacLean (University of St Andrews).

All available titles are indicated by a small green box. PDFs can be read online or downloaded chapter by chapter.
